    Nick Fury is based off of the Ultimates universe, at the end of the day Sam L Jackson is better then David Hasselhoff.

    Hayden Christensen isn't a bad actor. They just gave him the most horrible lines and angles, it wasn't his fault.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    I have to say, I gave that film a shot and I thought it was semi decent. I have seen worse. Mila Kunis is a decent actress, Mark Wahlberg is an amazing actor. If you disagree, you should watch The Big Hit . It's really not poorly cast. I think some are mistaken "worst casting" with "films I disliked".

    Raul Julia was actually the only decent actor in that entire film. It might've not been an amazing cast, but as mentioned, alot better then Kylie Minogue. He portraits the baddie pretty well imo.

    Ron Perlman is surely not one of the worst fucking actors on earth. You should get some grip and start realising this thread is about worst casting.
    Ron Perlman is ace in Sons of Anarchy. (yes, he does have a monkey face XD)

    Also, not mentioned but it's the main reason I can't watch the show.... David Caruso... In anything he does, but he made CSI Miami uninteresting from the get-go! Leading a show like that, after getting used to "Grissom" in CSI Las Vegas is an insult.

    That's kinda true but he could have done better, but tbh, I don't think he used to be a great actor, that is why his role was very awkward to watch. o.O

    I picked John Wayne as Genghis Khan. I never knew about this one, I mean WOW what in the world were they thinking when they did that?

    Russell Crowe as Robin Hood. Everything about it is epic fail, not least his hilariously bad and weirdly indefinable accent.

    Charlton Heston as a Mexican is always one of my favorites

    there's plenty more bad ones, I'm sure I will remember them

    Kristen Kreuk as Chun Li comes to mind

    oh and it really irks me when every roman/greek/historical non-british person is always british actors
    it really came to a head for me when they had Brad Pitt as Achilles using an accent, was it a greek accent? GUESS AGAIN

    brits tend to play nazis a lot too, but there are plenty of movies that do a good job of employing german actors, several of whom largely built their careers playing nazi villains

    re-make casts are generally gross, but thats hard to counter, re-makes just need to not be made to solve that problem

    Fully agree. Didn't like him in Gone in Sixty Seconds either. In my opinion Cage is just not suited to play badass/macho roles.

    My own nomination would be Sophie Turner playing Sansa in Game Of Thrones. She is not bad actress by any means, but I just can't accept her as Sansa.

    I would say not only Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader but also his love interest, what's her name. It never seemed like there was any chemistry between the two. While I still think there was great chemistry among the original trilogy's cast.

    Padmé?

    Lol, I feel ashamed, I can't really remember, it's been atleast one year since I saw the 6 episodes.

    Hehe... That was her. Is it a bad sign that I'm not even willing to google it to find out the actresses name? It was so terribly bland.

    I have a few, maybe not some of the worst casting in the history of cinema, but off the top of my head:
    Keanu Reeves in Bram Stoker’s Dracula
    Kevin Spacey in Se7en (love the actor, liked the movie, disliked the casting choice for some reason)
    Chris Evans in The Avengers
    Kevin Bacon in Mystic River
    Edward Norton in Kingdom of Heaven
    Robert De Niro in Red Lights
    Shia LaBeouf in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
    Leonardo DiCaprio in Gangs of New York

    Okay, this is where I have to step in. What the serious fuck. No. I don’t even wanna say a single word. This is too ridiculous. Holy shit.

    - Chris Evans as Cap America (baby face)
    - Nic Cage as Ghostrider

    and a complete winner in my book

    - WENTWORTH MILLER AS CHRIS REDFIELD

    Seriously, this film is an absolute piece of shit but if there is one thing they got wrong in every single aspect, it was Chris.

    Myself, I can't imagine anyone else as Sansa. On top of her portrayal being spot-on, she is a borderline hottie and will propably turn out to be one of more recogniseable actresses in near future which is makes casting her even better decision.

    It's not bad that you didn't, I didn't too. xD

    And yeah, her acting was pretty bad. Tbh, now that I think of it, almost every one from the 2 trilogy was a pretty shitty actor, asides from Mace, the Chancelor and problaby Obi Wan and his master, I can't really remember now.

    I need to watch everything!

    The reason is that Lucas can not write believable romance dialog. It was doomed from the start.
